Yes pilots, it's that time of year. Leaves turn color, nights get cold, and people suddenly are possessed of an irresistible urge to fly that most awesome of GSF ship classes:

the STRIKE FIGHTER!

There are lots of guides and tutorial materials extolling the awfulness of strike fighters, but there comes a time when you have to throw off the shackles of mere performance, spurn both the cowering behind cover of Gunships and Bombers, and the cooldown crutch dependencies of scouts, and break out those Quad lasers, Heavy lasers, missiles, and have some good old fashioned dogfighting fun.


So, on the weekend of Oct 20, 21, 22 I'd like to organize a series of events celebrating (in a not very serious way) the strike fighter in GSF.

Oct 20

Clarion Convention
Server Jedi Covenant
TIme: 7 - 11 pm EDT
Hop into a Clarion or Imperium, and take advantage of the only strike with a systems component. Also enjoy the beautiful blue halo of the occasional Proton Torp hit. (yes, this one is in honor of Eudoxia).


Oct 21

Missile Mania
Server: Shadowlands
Time: 8 - 11 EDT
Step into a Pike or Quell, equip the missiles of you choice, and fire away. Just missiles please, none of that laser weapon foolishness. Missiles are the future of space combat don't you know.


Wiskey-build Wipeout
Server: Harbinger
Time: 11 pm - 2 am EDT, 8 - 11 PDT
Grab a Whisky build Starguard, Rycer, or Gladiator and see how many RFL shots you can shoot in one game. Hitting targets optional. For extra hilarity I very strongly recommend using CHARGED PLATING instead of Quick Charge.

Oct 22

Super Serious Strikes EU
Server: TRE
Time: 8-12 pm UTC
Super serious strikes? Embrace the paradox! Build the meanest strike build you can think of, group up in a team, and kill the snot out of every enemy ship you come across.

Super serious strikes, NA round one.
Server: Shadowlands
Time: 7 - 10:30 pm EDT
